Tens of thousands of Venezuelans marched today to the Caracas headquarters of an anti-government television station, which is being forced off the air after President Hugo Chavez’s administration refused to renew its broadcasting license.
Just so we’re clear, this is happening in the same country where virtually no one had anything to say when Chavez gave himself dictatorial powers and the country’s elected representatives went along with it.
Message to would-be-dictators everywhere: give yourself that promotion. Just don’t mess with the freedom of citizens to watch television.
